Altenew Mighty Kind Stand Alone Dies Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)




 You have arrived from Joylita Dsouza and at any time you can return to the Altenew Blog for the full hop list.

You can check out the new release HERE.

Projects


I've die cut rainbow colors with the Flowing Foliage die set and left some of the negative pieces in place for more visual interest. The sentiment is die cut with the new Mighty Alphabet set from glitter card stock.



The Simple Shapes Cover Die is fantastic! You've seen so many ways to use it. I've kept this card simple, die cutting out of Gold Mirror cardstock and creating the sentiment with the Mighty Alphabet die set.


For this card I've die cut the frame two times from Gold Foil cardstock, rotated one 90 degrees and layered over the other.  I just love the font this sentiment die is in.


Supplies:


I've die cut the Flowing Foliage from glitter card stock and then glued over a debossed card front. Simple yet lovely and a great way to use all of the dies in the set. Sentiment is from the Way to Go set.

Supplies:
Flowing Foliage Die set
Way to Go Die set
Glitter cardstock-Gilded

Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Garden Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Welcome to the Altenew Craft Your Project Kit: Garden Rose Blog Hop. 

You should have arrived from Preeti Chandran's blog.


I think this is my favorite Craft Your Life Project Kit so far, the roses are STUNNING!!! 

The hop starts at the Altenew blog so you can head there for the full hop list.


Projects


I used the coloring stencil to randomly stencil the base layer of the roses in Buttercream ink and Warm Sunshine ink. I then applied the stencil masks over the roses and added the leaves in Sweet leaf ink. Friend is stencilled in Teal Cave ink and then the panel is embossed with the kit 3D Embossing Folder. 



I've used the stamps, stencils and stencil masks to stamp and color this arrangement of roses using just one layer of the layering stamps. The "thanks" sentiment is inked with the stencil and Jet Black ink, the sentiments above and below are from the kit stamp set.


This card is created the same way as the one above with the exception of the "hello" die cut which is from the Circle Greetings Hello die.

Supplies:


These next two cards were created from one 8 1/2" by 5 1/2" sheet that has been embossed over the center of the sheet, inked with Mixed Media Pigment Ink and trimmed into two card fronts.

Wide Dotted Washi tape is applied along the bottom and the sentiment is stamped on white card stock and adhered over a strip of gold foil card stock glued over the seam.


After stamping the outline layer of the roses in Jet Black, I added Pink Pearl with the coloring stencil and then stamped the layers in Coral Bliss and Vineyard Berry.

Supplies:

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Primrose Blossom Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)



Welcome here from Natasha Davies blog, I'm thrilled to join the Craft-A-Flower: Primrose Blossom Release! 


The hop begins at the Altenew Card Blog so feel free to head back there at any time if you get lost along the way.

CAF: Primrose Blossom



I've inked white card stock with Pink Diamond, Baby Pink, Razzleberry, Sunray, Lime, Sweet Leaf, Hunter Green and Minty Mint Crisp Dye Inks.

I used less than a full sheet of cardstock even using all these ink colors!


After gluing all the die cuts together I embossed watercolor cardstock with the the Blossoming Branches 3D Embossing Folder then added water and gave a light wash of Turquoise Watercolor Brush Marker. Once dry I added the die cuts and then some splatters with Jet Black and Desert Night Watercolor Brush Marker.



For the life of me I can not remember what hello die I used for this, I forgot to write it down, lol. A few clear drops add a nice bit of shine to the finished slimline card.

Altenew Rustic Charm Stamp/Die/Stencils/Embossing Folders/Washi Tape/Brush Marker/Fine Mister Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

 


Hello Crafty Friends!

Welcome to your final stop on the Altenew Rustic Charm Collection Release Blog Hop. You should have arrived from the lovely Natasha Davies and you can head back to the Altenew blog to make sure you don't miss anyone on the hop.



Check out the entire release HERE!

Happy Faces


I stamped three ornaments with the solid stamp in Volcano, Emerald and Mountain Pine ink and then die cut the detail layers from glitter cardstock. 


Isn't that glitter paper fantastic? I created a photo mat from a 3d Embossing folder and layered all the elements over an ink blended background. Some silver thread and enamel dots complete the layout.

Supplies:

Home


Introducing the DIY Watercolor Brush Marker, it comes empty and you can create a custom blend of colors. I mixed Purple Wine, Desert Night and a little bit of Iridescent Ink Spray within the DIY Watercolor Brush Marker to create the watercolored night sky background. I also added a little Emerald and Desert Night ink to darken the edges. I love the mist of water I get from the new Fine Mister, especially when adding water over watercolor ink, it doesn't blow the ink around.


I stamped and white heat embossed the houses on houses on watercolor paper and I love how they look like a row of cottages. layered the houses on the watercolored card front and then ran it through my die cut machine with the largest die from the Slim Nested Rectangles.

If you look closely you'll see I added some Sparkly Fluff on the billow of smoke coming out of the chimneys.

Supplies:

Thankful For You


This card features the Whirlwind Flowers layering stamp set which I've stamped and die cut the larger of the two floral images and three of the leaf images. I used the Simple Frames Mask Stencil to mask the outer edge to ink the inner portion with the new Shattered Cubes Builder stencil prior to embossing with the Simple Frame 3D Embossing Folder.


The edges of the frame are inked with Antique Gold Pigment Ink and sentiment from the stamp set along with a trio of Antique Gold Sequins complete the card.

Supplies:
Whirlwind Flowers Stamp Set
Shattered Cubes Builder Stencil

Happy Holidays



The new Globe Builder Die is fantastic and has soooo many possibilities! You've seen some amazing projects earlier in the hop. I've create two shaker cards with the trees from the set.

These cards came together very quickly, the shaker frames are created with the Rounded Rectangles Die set, the starry sky is metallic watercolor splattered on the navy background. The shaker portion is adhered to a 3D Embossed card front and then the card base.


Sentiments from the Lovely Ornaments stamp set are gold heat embossed and then matted on glitter card stock.

Supplies:

Globe Builder Die Set
Lovely Ornaments Stamp Set
